Why a Baby Formula Lawsuit Is Taking Place
Baby formulas Enfamil and Similac have helped countless families feed their new babies successfully. However, they do not appear to be safe for premature babies. In fact, they could be quite deadly. Here’s why our attorneys are pursuing a baby formula lawsuit against Enfamil and Similac.
Baby Formulas May Be Killing Premature Infants
For premature infants, major studies connected these two formulas to something called necrotizing enterocolitis, or NEC.
NEC is a relatively common and extremely dangerous digestive disease affecting premature babies. It often requires time on an IV or even surgery. Then, if the surgery doesn’t work, the NEC becomes fatal and the baby dies.
This illness devastates families and steals the lives of precious children. It leaves the grieving survivors with astronomical medical bills and unspeakable other losses.
Medical experts agree these formulas cause NEC in premature babies. In fact, multiple studies show a terrible pattern:
- 5-12% of very low-birthweight infants will suffer from NEC
- 20-40% of those infants will require surgery
- nearly 25% will die
And yet, for some incomprehensible reason, Enfamil and Similac have refused to add a warning label even to this day.
